It's been an interesting couple of weeks. We've had some sickness. There's also been a ton of stuff going on. It's been pretty wild keeping up with everything, yet nice. I like to keep busy during this dreary time of the year.
And during all of this I've been thinking about the One Year Bible Reading Program I started the beginning of this year.
I have decided it isn't for me right now.
Sounds crazy, I know. But here's why-
I feel hemmed in.
I read certain scriptures that I want to study more, or I read a scripture that reminds me of another and I get caught up in that. A half hour later I've only read a small portion of what I was actually "supposed to."
Last year I did my own thing and it took me a year to get from Genesis to I Kings, but I felt like I learned so much that way.
I recently came across a book I purchased last year that I really want to work through, but it seemed overwhelming with the program.
So, long story short- I'm not doing it. I'm going to work through this big book on the history of the church and study the scriptures highlighted.
It's not about how I study it or how long it takes...just that I do it.
Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. II Timothy 2:15
